VALLEJO, CA (Oct. 31, 2013) – Earl Stevens better known as platinum recording artist and Hip-Hop Icon E-40, today announced the launch of “Earl Stevens Selections” – an array of white and red wine in three flavors: Mangoscato, Function Red Blend and Moscato. The debut marks the Bay Area superstar’s dominance in a new arena.
“I wanted to create my own wine because I’m a huge wine connoisseur. I love wine and I got a name for myself so I decided to make my own,” explains E-40. The Vallejo-bred recording artist, actor and entrepreneur is mostly known for his unorthodox rap style and catchy slang words. In the early days of his career, he made his name by selling tapes out the trunk of his car and now he is living his dream. Earl Stevens Selections is yet another extension of E-40’s business savvy and drive to succeed in every area he chooses.
Each bottle of wine is finely crafted and produced in Northern California with only the highest quality of ingredients. The refreshing sweet, but crisp “Mangoscato” flavor blends the sweet aromas of mango, citrus and apple, and the 18% alcohol gives a strong finish. The Cabernet and Zinfandel “Function Red Blend” opens with titillating aromas of raspberry and plum and subtle hints of spice, oak and vanilla. The flavors are a delicious array of ripe fruit and balanced acidity with the sweet headiness of French oak. The smooth and fruity Moscato flavor meshes the floral aromas of honeysuckle, gardenia, orange blossom, white cherry, apple, pear and peach. The finish is smooth, fruity and nicely balanced. E-40’s got grapes, literally!
